Tim Hortons Creates Donut in Honor of Jason Priestley

February 6, 2013

The latest episode of How I Met Your Mother was largely based on Robin's (played by Cobie Smulders) Canadian roots. Guest starring Jason Priestley, the episode featured a lot of talk about and in Tim Hortons restaurants. At one point, Priestley's character reminisced about one visit to the coffee chain when he decided to stuff a timbit into a strawberry jelly vanilla donut, creating 'The Priestley.' 

Tim Hortons decided to take Priestley's suggestion and recreated the very same baked good. 

"@Jason_Priestley, we loved the idea of 'The Priestley' so much, we made a batch. A Timbit IN a donut? Genius. #HIMYM," Tim Hortons tweeted, adding the above photo. 

Priestley caught wind of the photo which went viral. "Thank you Tim Horton's!!! This is the proudest day of my life!!! A donut named after me at Timmie's?? #bestdayever," the actor wrote. 

Would you try The Priestley?
